    My desktop is where I ran all my music CDs through in iTunes to get the music on all of my Apple devices. I am using Windows 7 Pro via BootCamp.

    I know have a new computer and was hoping some one can tell me where the files are so I can copy them to my new computer instead of doing it via each CD?

    Can someone give me the file location and name of file I need to copy and move with any additional instructions?

    Thanks in advance!

    In iTunes settings, you may find iTunes library location. Copy that folder without changing anything inside, to your new PC or Mac, and target iTunes on new PC or Mac to that folder.
    To be more specific, say I have an iTunes library stored at
    /Volumes/My Passport/iTunes Library/
    Then I need to copy whole "iTunes Library" folder to new location, say /Volume/BOOTCAMP/iTunes Library
    Then, when starting up iTunes, press Shift (for Windows) or Option (for Mac), and click "Choose Library". And find that new location, select it.
    Note this will copy the whole library to your new location.
